Good sushi and fresh as well; a "hibachi" grill for pick-your-ingredients dishes; good Japanese and some Chinese dishes; tasty desserts. What's not to like? The early buffet is a bit cheaper but the variety doesn't suffer for it. Good, clean surroundings and tasty food.

The food was average at best. There was a fair selection, but nothing was exceptional. I guess if you prepare everything in mass it takes it down to an average level.

Very good place for a large group and some good food; they have plenty of choices of sushi and they are all freshly made. Other side you will find all the standard Japanese noodles along with meat and crawfish if you like that. I saw...More

I tend to be nervous in general about buffets but the food here was good and the staff was lovely. The Dungeness crab was really tasty!
